I think we should know

rdave, yes they are OK for most of us plebs, I like them myself. For the executive connoisseur I would think a trifle bland:-))

Simple really it is what FE bribes the good lady with so he can spend time on here keeping us reprobates in line :)

The ultimate biscuit dunking experience is with a simple oaten Hobnob into Cadbury's hot chocolate.

You hedonist!

If you haven't already done so, got to Cafe Florian on St Mark's square in Venice. Ask for an outside table, order hot chocolate, and wait for the chocolate experience of a lifetime, served into a white porcelain cup from a silver chocolate pot. Lean back and watch the people wandering across the square. Reflect on the fact that often, the very best things in life are quite simple pleasures. Go in late September/early October when the lagoon has an early morning mist. A brisk walk along the waterfront will prepare you for the chocolate experience.

I bet your bill was a bit higher there than a few Euros sneaked from your wife's purse!! It sounds delightful - I must visit it ASAP.

In lieu of not being able to hop over to Venice at the moment, I'll have to make my own. But it is sufficiently cold after a quick spin on my bike to replicate most of the hedonism at home:-)

I find it the perfect après-bike to recover from the physical exertion!

If Venice is out for the time being but hedonism still beckons, put the cadburys away and nip to your nearest Waitrose for a tin or three of this - the hot chocolate lover's chocolate.

Mcvities dark chocolate digestives for me, usually taken in pairs with a cup of tea.

Hmm time to put the kettle on.
